The Cult of Constitutionalism

Richard Albert, Boston College Law School

Abstract

Constitutionalism compels and constrains all dimensions of our everyday lives in ways large and small that we often do not fully appreciate – perhaps because constitutions take many forms that we do not generally associate with constitutionalism. From the arts, sports, trade, entertainment, politics and war, constitutionalism is both the point of departure and the port of call. In this paper, I explore whether and how we might distinguish among these seemingly infinite types of constitutions.
